Dong apron with pink flowers
Old Dong ethnic apron fully embroidered by hand, in a beautiful harmony of greens and pale roses and delicate and varied embroidery. Excellent...
In the course of our repeated journeys to South-west China, and while making contact with women, we have hunted some beautiful pieces of antique embroidery : baby-carriers, jackets, ornamental aprons to be worn under a skirt... and sometimes only pieces smaller and larger but always the expression of creativity, dexterity and art of colour symbolic of traditional costumes.
Some pieces are complete as such, such as the baby carriers, but we have completed others,for example with black fabric and handles so that they can be suspended on a wall with a bamboo stick.
Each piece carries the soul and culture of the ethnic minority it is issued from.
